I would rather you NOT to make any solution until TAG reconsider the 
httpRange-14 (the definition of information resource and the meaning of 
303).  I have mentioned a few times in the past few weeks.  The issue is 
*very serious* so is its long term consequence. 

If you need a solution for your particular domain, such as POWDER, do it 
in whatever way you think is necessary, such as an HTTP POWER header, 
but just DO NOT make it a formal recommendation for HTTP, such as LINK.
